    100% cotton.  I live in a dry area and don't sweat much.

      KT tape works wonderfully. It's flexible, soft, designed to stick to sweaty skin, yet easy to peel off.

      I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day.

        Speaking of milk trucks, what tips do the ladies have for dealing with sore nipples?

          never had a problem so far. i alternate between a natori sports bra (underwire) and a knix catalyst (wireless). the good ones have some padding/thickness/cushion to eliminate the friction.

           

          they do have some sport bralettes that dont have wires if you men arent hearty.

           

          as far as milk trucks, i just recently dried up. not a drop left :-(

          good times, tho.

           

          but back when i did have bleeding nipples i used lasinoh to help heal (its safely edible for the baby too).

            KT tape is brilliant!  Why didn't I think of that?  And here I've been using duct tape for years, which works, but KT tape would have all those advantages above!!

            We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.

              I use large bandages, the 3x4 size. I think they were Curad brand fabric bandages, they stayed on perfectly for a 50k and a 60 mile run.

               

              I've had problems getting KT brand tape to stick for very long on my achilles, but Rocktape works really well. There are newer, gooder, stickier (claimed) versions, too. I have not put it on my manboobs, though.

                Personally, the Target Up&Up flexible fabric bandages work great for me. Super cheap, and I can use them for actual cuts, too. Just center the gauze on your nipple. I sweat a ton, train in hot weather, and have never had one come off. One pair got me through a 12 hour race (64 miles) in 80-90 degree heat with high dew point. Of course, your mileage may vary, and it sounds like this doesn't work for others on the forum. Still, if you try it and it doesn't work you're out less than $2 and can still just use them as normal bandages.

                  Man, I don't even want tape to stay on my nipples for a week.

                   

                  Anyway, trail toes or squirrels nut butter or blue steel.

                   

                  LOL ... this!  One of the features of the round band-aids is that they AREN'T so sticky.  It's not the end of the nipple world if they come off at mile 16 of my 20 mile run in the rain.  4 miles won't bother me.  Though I've not had that 'problem', they seem to stay put until I get into the shower and then can take em off pretty easily.  Perfect.  I don't want those things stuck to me for a week!

                    Successful test run with these. Adhesive over the whole surface, so more like using something like KT tape rather than a band-aid. It was a 2.5 hour run, although not raining or excessively sweaty. Need a more severe test to further validate results.

                     

                    Anyway, incidentally just yesterday I ordered these. Maybe just expensive band-aids, IDK, we’ll see.
